It is important that customers always keep a safe copy of their database in case of a database corruption, or if you simply want to undo some changes that were accidentally made. That is why we have the ability for each customer to back up their own database – something a lot of other cloud software developers do not provide.
With this update the backup has just got even easier. For any customer who is using the dropbox integration, you can now choose to allow RentHQ to back up your database for you directly to your dropbox account, at a schedule of your choosing. You could choose to backup daily or weekly or every 9 days – the choice is yours. You can also choose the time of day to do the backup e.g. 2 a.m. when everyone is sleeping.
To enable your backup schedule, go to the Functions/Setup/Options screen, then to the Dropbox tab, and if dropbox is enabled you will see the backup scheduling options.
